Hi

I cannot type several letters - keyboard ON laptop is one of the keyboards with a separate number pad. have tried turning ON and then off the number lock. going to setting to make sure I'm ON either Canada or USA keyboard. even tried a few suggestions in older forums about hitting start + R - all that did was bring up a keyboard I could use my mouse and single type letter by letter. that option in not conducive to me needs.

right now some of the strangeness is - hit letter b - nothing same with letter v

hit letter I - automatically types i8
hit letter e- automatically types e3
hit the upper 5 - types t5
over ON the number pad
type either the 8 or the 5 - automatically types both the 8 and the five

enter doesn't work at all

please help - I need my PC for my accounting and currently just using my MAC to attempt assistance

PC with issues is a Toshiba running ON windows 10 office 2007 and E1 vision AMD processor

Try this

1. Remove the battery and cable.

2. Press and hold the power button for 58 seconds.

3. Replug and start.

Good luck
